#163: A Moment of Innocence (1996)

Flowery Naan.

An Iranian film isn’t an Iranian film without some Iranians and political provocation. With virtually all of his motion pictures banned in his native homeland, director Makhmalbaf has built up a reputation for both blatant and covert social commentary in his films. 1996’s A Moment of Innocence (previously known as Bread & Flour) is no exception. A tender autobiographical story of a teenage rebel and a law enforcing policeman, it’s a shame that A Moment of Innoncence gets a little caught up in poetics to really drive home the political pertinency.
